Faster Recovery and Better Results With No-Drain Tummy Tuck

no drain tummy tuck When diet and exercise alone cannot address stubborn fat and loose skin around the abdomen, it may be time for a tummy tuck. Tummy tucks, otherwise medically known as abdominoplasties, are cosmetic surgeries that help remove excess fat and skin, giving you a flat stomach and tight midsection.

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons found that nearly 90% of people who underwent a tummy tuck were satisfied with their results. A tummy tuck is an excellent choice to address sagging skin and abdominal fat; however, there is an even better option: a no-drain tummy tuck

No-drain tummy tucks remove the hassle found in the recovery period of standard tummy tucks. Learn how no-drain tummy tucks can help you achieve better results with a shorter recovery time.

Traditional Recovery Period Requires Drains

Since excess fluid is a bodily response to the tummy tuck procedure, a typical abdominoplasty requires you to use a drain after surgery. The draining is typically done through tubing and a pump.

With a traditional tummy tuck, you may need to self-drain through a pump twice a day for up to a week or more until your doctor decides drainage is no longer necessary. Since the tube and pump extend out of the body, the process can be bothersome and difficult for some people.

Luckily, due to no-drain tummy tucks, sutures are utilized during the surgery to eliminate the need for drainage. Not only is scarring minimal, but you won’t have to deal with the hassle of draining and maintaining an external pump.

Furthermore, drainage can cause complications and increase the time you need to remain stationary. With no-drain tummy tucks, you have fewer complications and can move around easier after surgery.
